Yaffe issues

Anyone else had problems getting parts and service out of the guys at Bagger Nation? Been waiting for a set of bars to show up that we ordered months ago and was just told today that because of a mix up on their end with our order, we would have to wait another 1-2 months for them to be available to us. The kicker is, because of their screw up I didn’t get the bars I ordered when I would have a month ago had it not happened. Been quite the fiasco to deal with these guys. Lots of promises and zero follow through.

Was trying to get the OEM monkey bars in 14” black. What’s comparable? I really liked the way those bars felt on a bike at my local dealer.

Lots of options out there. People will mention factory 47, I went with JSR Customs. Great service.

I've always had good luck with Vindikta for bars and engine guards.

1 1/2" to opposed to Yaffe's 1 1/4" look better and easier to wire up.

Joe's also willing to the little things for the customer like prep the bar ends for Heated Grips, etc

That explains the ridiculous wait times and why no one could throw a set together and get be taken care of after waiting an eternity. Glad I got my money back, thanks for the heads up on that

I just sent a note on some Wildcat 14's for my 2018 CVO. I can't submit an order because I'm in Canada, so hopefully someone will contact me in a day or so.

Good luck. I ordered from vindikta over a month ago. Took my money. Have never answered an email, phone call, or fb message. Now I have to dick around with purchase dispute to get my money back on my credit card. Not to mention wasted a month waiting while I could have purchased something else if I had known he was just scamming and not actually sending the bars.

If you have somebody local who can powder coat Bad Seed Cycles makes a nice bar and great customer service.

When did that happen? I just put a set of 12" chrome on my bike and the info in the box said made in USA.

From an ad on Amazon for '98 to '13 RG's:
Hand-crafted to fit touring models
1.25" diameter bars are pre-drilled for easy internal wiring
Available in chrome or gloss black powder-coated finishes
Work great with Paul Yaffe's Bagger Nation "Super Clamp" one-piece riser clamp
Made in the USA NOTE: Not for use with hydraulic clutch

BTW, I bought mine through Revzilla online
